Long Time


Stagger Lee was a bad man, eve'ybody know/

And Yours Truly and his lovely bride have now been married for forty-four years, too.


Got a houseful of family arriving this afternoon to visit for Thanksgiving, so the celebration will have to wait until next weekend. The traditional gift for a 44th? Groceries. (43rd is travel, and 45, a sapphire, but ... groceries?)


I'll have somebody camping in my office the next week, so postings will be hit or miss. Happy Thanksgiving to those who celebrate it in case I miss saying it later.
